Teesdale Way: Stapleton to Gainsford

22 Apr

Lovely 11.5 mile walk along the Tees from Stapleton to Gainsford today. We were very lucky with the weather and only had one bad downpour, with the weather staying fair for the rest of the day.

We walked into Piercebridge and spent some time exploring the Roman fort there, which had been built to protect and manage the crossings over a wooden bridge over the Tees.

A lovely walk, and a nice post-walk drink in the pub too. 🙂
